Voices Ending Violence Breakfast 2017

It’s not too late to reserve your seat or sponsor a table at our upcoming Voices Ending Violence Breakfast on Friday June 9th at the Buffalo Convention Center.  We have a brief, but powerful and inspiring event planned that will celebrate all that the Family Justice Center has accomplished in the past year.  And, we have accomplished a lot!

We have added new partners, expanded our services and are even working on a third satellite office!  We will also be looking back on the success of our web-conferencing program with Erie County Family Court.  It was thanks to Judge Sharon Townsend having the foresight ten years ago to allow the first web-conferencing program with family court that has allowed the Center to assist thousands of clients in obtaining emergency orders of protection.  It has been so successful that Governor Cuomo enacted a new statute that authorized the establishment of a pilot program to duplicate the web-conferencing program in twelve other domestic violence agencies across the state.

In addition to the accomplishments, we will be unveiling a new video and hearing from remarkably courageous survivors who will be sharing their stories.  These men and women are a reminder of why the Family Justice Center exists and why we work so hard every day to ensure every victim has access to the services they need to safely escape the abuse.

If you would like to join us for the event or if your company would like to sponsor a table, please contact Tiffany Szymanek at 558-5272 or tszymanek@fjcsafe.org.  You can also register for the event at our website: www.fjcsafe.org.
